BTCC Brands Hatch: Rounds 22, 23 & 24, 18-19 August

Leason looks to have switched from the BTCC to Porsches now, not sure if Pocklington or Kerry will be there this weekend.
However, Gavin Smith is making a comeback, driving a GR Asia SEAT Leon for the last three weekends.

What's the weather forecast like? I've got a couple of tickets and might well pop along if it's gonna be sunny.

Alfa Fan has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Kerry is racing this weekend. Don't know about Pocklington, I think he's withdrawn from the series (hasn't been at the last two meetings).

Race two on ITV4 live. Race three on ITV1 live. No Setanta coverage this weekend.

It's a shame Smith gets the Leon and not Jones.

Craig: 21 deg sunny forecast, however, I aint no Sian Lloyd.

Well surprise surprise. Setanta barely promoted it's BTCC coverage at the start of the season, then drop it as soon as the footy starts again.

And a full re-run of race 1 on ITV4 before that.

Not quite true. Setanta announced at the start of the season they would show 8 out of 10 of the meetings in full live. The two meetings they will not be showing live are Brands Hatch this weekend and then Knockhill in September. Both these meetings will recieve 2 hours of highlights on the Sunday evening, where all 3 BTCC races will be shown in full. Live all-day coverage returns for the season finale at Thruxton on October 14.

Your forecast is likely to be accurate then

But what is true is that they have 'dropped' 2 events now, when the footy season has started, rather than at any time when there is no football. Coincidence? I think not. More people care about football in this country than the BTCC.

Oh well, guess I'll finally have to watch it on ITV for Knockhill

From btcc.net, dated 11 March 07

Quote:
All ten race fixtures will also receive highlights coverage on ITV’s Men & Motors channel (Freeview/cable/satellite). Furthermore, each race day – including the BTCC’s support championships – will be shown live on independent sports channel Setanta Sports (subscription cable/satellite).

That's what i've had to do all season...

However, the renaultsport website has begun to upload full races onto the website.

Better than nothing i guess!

But yes, please Motors, take it back!

It has been known all season Setanta would skip the two events mentioned.
